  • Advanced Photonix, Inc. (API) Completes Sale Of Two T-Gauge Systems To Appleton Papers  0 comments
    Sep 6, 2012 10:46 AM | about stocks: API

    Advanced Photonix announced today it has sold two terahertz systems under a development agreement with Appleton Papers, Inc., a specialty coating developer and manufacturer of thermal, carbonless, security, and specialty papers. The two T-Gauge measurement systems sold to Appleton will initially be used to provide inspection and quality control of current and newly developed coated products on a pilot manufacturing line. The intention is to transfer these two units to full-scale production equipment as soon as the quality objectives have been demonstrated.

    The capability of terahertz energy to perform a variety of critical measurements for the paper industry - replacing nuclear gauges - has been verified by the EPA. Production testing was performed at the Appleton Papers plant in Appleton, Wis. The wide frequency content and high precision of API's terahertz industrial system enables measurement of caliper thickness, density, basis weight, and coat weight, and can be used for quality monitoring of the product being produced.

    This is the world's first deployment of a terahertz system in the paper industry for on-line quality control, and the transaction with Appleton opens up the paper coating market. Building on this sale, API will continue expanding the number of future industrial applications, customers, and global markets for its T-Gauge systems.

    Advanced Photonix is a leader in supplying an expansive offering of optoelectronic products to a worldwide customer base. The company provides optoelectronic solutions, high-speed optical receivers, and terahertz instrumentation for telecom, homeland security, military, medical, and industrial markets. API's patented technology and leading-edge manufacturing offers industry-leading performance, quality, and high value-added products to its OEM customer base.
